Our consumption is taking a toll on our planet. The truth is, we've been taking more than we give for far too long. It's time to give back, and it's time to do it now.

Welcome to the Net Positive Network. We're an unconfined network of business leaders, startups, opinion makers, experts, and producers; all committed to making a real difference. For us, talking alone doesn’t do the trick. We take action.

By joining the Net Positive Network, you're not just making a statement. It’s a commitment to give back more than you take. Cutting emissions, rethinking energy needs, and increasing our carbon capacity; all on such scale that we’re actively working towards a net positive future. We start with our food system.

We believe it’s possible to live within the boundaries of our planet. We exchange ideas at the dinner table, collaborate, and spot and create opportunities. Together, we create momentum and contribute to building a movement that will shift minds and change thinking.

We recognize we need each other. That’s why everyone participates and is able to participate. By simply speaking up about what's on your plate, you contribute to our shared solutions. Only then can we make tangible results on our journey from net negative, to net positive.

Welcome to the Net Positive Network. Let’s give what it takes.
